Nova Scotia RCMP says a teen is facing multiple charges after an incident on Wednesday saw a driver flee from police while travelling at high speeds.
Police say at approximately 11:20 a.m., officers received a report of a pickup truck doing burnouts in front of a school on Highway 2 in Milford, N.S.
Officers responded to the scene and were able to identify the driver. When they attempted to pull the truck over the vehicle accelerated at speeds of up to 120 km/hr. in a 60 km/hr. zone.
The Mounties say two people were in the vehicle at the time of the incident.
The vehicle was later located at a home in Dutch Settlement, N.S., and seized by police for stunting.
The driver, a 17-year-old youth from Dutch Settlement, turned himself in later that evening and was later released on conditions.
The teen is scheduled to appear in Shubenacadie Youth Court on June 3 to face charges of dangerous driving and fleeing from police.
